12 Movie Sex Scenes Even More Awkward Than Your First Time

The only thing that would make these scenes more awkward would be if you watched them with your parents.

1. Kristen Wiig Sex – MacGruber (2010)

Will Forte is quickly becoming the new master of awkward. The sounds he makes during this scene are every person’s worst nightmare.

2. Graveyard Sex – MacGruber (2010)

After having sex with Kristen Wiig, MacGruber feels guilty, so what does he do? Goes to his wife’s grave and has sex with her ghost. Let’s all have a moment of silence for the maintenance guy that shows up and basically sees MacGruber having sex with a gravestone.

3. Turkey Time – Gigli (2003)

Just… no. JLo is officially the Grinch of Thanksgiving.

4. McLovin Sex – Superbad (2007)

“It’s in.” McLovin is so awkward in general, and this just makes it so much worse. It doesn’t help that since the actor was seventeen when this was filmed, his mom was onset for the whole thing.

5. Sex Off – Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)

No one wants to think about their ex having sex with someone else, let alone hear it happening next door, let alone compete with them over who can sound like they’re having the best sex. But that’s exactly what happens here, and I think Russell Brand’s face at 0:30 pretty much sums up everyone’s experience watching this scene.

6. Jon Hamm Sex – Bridesmaids (2011)

Everything about this is so painful to watch, especially since more people can relate to it than would probably like to admit.

7. Hallelujah Sex – Watchmen (2009)


Why? Why?? Why use Leonard Cohen’s version of this song, when the obvious choice for a sexy scene is Jeff Buckley’s? Even Leonard Cohen doesn’t want to hear his voice during sex.

8. Pie Scene – American Pie (1999)

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCAOKR1jpp0&w=786&h=400%5D

I’m not sure which part of this scene is the most awkward. The loving note Jim’s mom left him, the clumsy pie fingering, or the fact that his dad wanted to talk with him afterwards. Actually, no. It’s definitely Jason Bigg’s ass. In one movie, he was able to turn himself into the exact opposite of a sex symbol.

9. Hallway Humping – Don Jon (2013)

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCuKKVyt6F4&w=786&h=400%5D

No one expected that a sex scene featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson would be awkward, but here we are. Johansson’s character refuses to let JGL into her apartment to have sex, so they resort to dry humping in the hallway.

10. Couch Scene – Juno (2007)


The ultimate picture of high school awkwardness. No one needs to see Michael Cera’s naked bod reclining on a La-Z-Boy.

11. Pregnant Sex – Knocked Up (2007)

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJb4w7evK1s&w=786&h=400%5D

The whole time Ben is having sex with Alison, he’s worried that he’s going to “poke the baby.” The scene is so funny it’s almost not awkward. Almost.

12. Dirty Talk – Howard the Duck (1986)

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIOCaOpBGpE&w=786&h=400%5D

They don’t actually have sex, but that doesn’t make it less painful. No one needs to see a woman talk dirty to a duck. No one. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
